In these trying times, environmental advocacy is more important than ever. Advocacy takes many forms, but communicating directly with elected officials and federal land managers is a critical component. From the federal government down to the local level, there are many men and women who have a direct role in ensuring the sustainability (or lack thereof) of our environment. These public servants are more effective stewards of our lands, waters and wildlife when they are held accountable by the public in their decision-making.

This new page has local contact information for you to utilize as we work together to protect our environment. Don’t ever hesitate to contact these people with thoughts or concerns. It is important that they hear from you that you cherish healthy public lands and waters. The future of our environment and our quality of life depend on it!
